At the University of Michigan, I have served as both the primary instructor for four semesters of our undergraduate introductory writing course as well as the discussion section leader for two semesters of 300-level English literature courses. I am continuously looking for new ways to expand my knowledge of teaching and engage in discussions concerning pedagogy. I have taken numerous workshops through our Center for Research on Learning and Teaching (CRLT) and the Rackham graduate school and have completed UM’s Preparing Future Faculty Seminar. I have received the U-M Graduate Teacher Certificate and the Rackham Professional Development Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Certificate, with a special focus on teaching, and am a member of the Teaching & Learning in the Humanities RIW.

I also recently volunteered with the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at UM, where I created and led two courses: “Shakespeare’s Tempest Over Time” and “Challenging Shakespeare.”

I currently work as a Graduate Student Instructional Consultant with CRLT, providing guidance, support, and mentorship on teaching for my peers through observations, student feedback sessions, consultations, and teaching philosophy reviews.
